|Contextual Notes||Georg Mathaus Seutter (1678-1756) was a map publisher and cartographer from Nuremberg who set up shop in Augsburg. After an apprenticeship with J. B. Homann in 1697, he began working in Augsburg and was eventually appointed Geographer to Imperial Court. Throughout his lifetime, he competed with his old mentor and worked closely with his son-in-law to put out a collection of town plans. His works include "Atlas Germanicus" (c. 1720), "Atlas Geographicus" (1725), "Atlas Novus" (1728), "Grosser Atlas" (c. 1735), "Atlas novus sive tabulae geographicae totius orbis" (c. 1741), and "Atlas Minor" (1744). After his death, his son, Albrecht Karl, continued the business (Moreland and Bannister, 87-8; Tooley, "Dictionary of Mapmakers" 557).|
